So, for a professional cleaning product to work you need to give it time. For the best results, try to leave the product in the area for at least 10 to 30 minutes as per directions and then one must start scrubbing so that all the hard work has to be done by the product itself.

This technique works wonders on the pantry shelf too. It takes a lot of time to pick every container and then back again. Using a vacuum can make the work faster. It will also enable to clean beyond the reachable places like over the cabinet, between the door channels and behind the range hood etc.

Organise
